outrage over private information that found its way into rupert murdoch's newspapers in britain. let me say for the record that journalists are supposed to dig up information and just because somebody considers something private doesn't necessarily mean it's not newsworthy. but the murdoch scandal centers on alleged illegal phone hacks and bribes to police to get phone numbers, voice mails and documents from literally thousands of celebrities, politicians, members of the royal family, even murder victims. it's cnn's in-depth story of the week. today, former british prime minister gordon brown says murdoch papers got hold of his family's bank records. here's what brown told the bbc. >> i think what happened pretty early on in government is that the "sunday times" appeared to have got access to my building society account, they got access to my legal files, there's some question mark about what happened to other files, documentation, tax and everything else, but i'm shocked, i'm genuinely shocked to find that this happened because of their links with criminals. >> brown's predecessor refl
britain. richard, first, help us understand the tabloid culture here. "news of the world," are they beyond the pale, are they that much more sleazy than the rest of the british tabloids, or did they just get caught? >> i think they were, to some extent, in a league of their own in terms of exclusives. and the truth of the matter is, whether it was stories about prince harry and his drug taking, david beckham and his affair or any of the other stories, max mosely of the formula one sensation, whatever it was, their stories always managed to have a certain truth about them. so they had a certain disgusting credibility about it. they were very sure about what they went to press with. as, indeed, all the tabloids are. you can't, you dare not with the british library laws, or what used to be, go to press with a story you're not pretty certain are true or you've got a defense. so you end up with this paper that spews out some of the most vitriolic sewage every week, but frankly, more often than not, gets away with it. >> so the question is, what next? i want to talk more about the specific examp

scandal in britain has toppled one of the most widely read british tabloid newspapers. it imploded because of its own controversial news gathering methods. elizabeth palmer has the story. >> reporter: the tabloid that traded on scandal for more than a century was finally brought down by its own scandalous practice. the paper controlled by media titan rupert murdock who owns fox and the "wall street journal" will shut down on sunday. it was bad enough when it turned out the "news of the world" journalists had been hacking into private voice mails but worse when it emerged who their victims were. it started in 2005 when details of prince william's private life turned up in the paper. a police investigation found the royal phone had been hacked, and an editor went to jail, but it just unraveled from there. celebrities like jude law and hugh grant discovered they'd been hit, too. >> you know i think there's a national sense of revulsion here. >> reporter: revulsion that grew when a new investigation found a private investigator working for the paper had helped reporters hack into the messages

empire, particularly in britain so far, is likely to change that media empire here as well. mr. murdoch's company is not just a massive company, it is massively influential in u.s. politics, particularly in conservative u.s. politics, because his properties here include the "wall street journal," the most influential business newspaper in the country. and also "the new york post," the most influential tabloid newspaper in the country. and the fox news channel, which is a very successful full employment program for republican candidates. when the rupert murdoch scandal broke about bribery and illegal phone hacking as a regular way of doing business at his news properties, rupert murdoch had to drop his $12 billion bid to buy a satellite television channel in britain. had the deal gone through, he would have controlled 40% of all commercial television in britain. here it's 27 tv stations and the "wall street journal" and the fox news channel and "the new york post" and, and, and, and. i think the high noon light of day question to ask about all this is how vulnerable that empire is now th
